What is the Investment Attraction Fund?

The Investment Attraction Fund is a grant opportunity which aims to help businesses to establish and grow their operations in Western Australia.



The Investment Attraction Fund is a government initiative aimed at attracting new business investment and job creation in Western Australia. The fund provides financial assistance to eligible businesses that are looking to establish operations in Western Australia or expand their existing operations in the state.

The Investment Attraction Fund is administered by the Western Australian Government’s Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation. It is designed to support businesses across a range of sectors including resources and energy, agriculture and food, tourism, technology, and manufacturing.

The Investment Attraction Fund provides financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, and other financial incentives to eligible businesses. The amount and type of financial assistance provided by the Investment Attraction Fund depends on a range of factors, including the size and nature of the proposed investment, the number of jobs that will be created, and the overall economic benefits that the investment will bring to Western Australia.



The goal of the Investment Attraction Fund is to help diversify the state’s economy and create sustainable, long-term employment opportunities for Western Australians.



The amount of financial assistance made available to a successful applicant will be based on the successful application’s proposal and proportionate to the State’s assessment of value for money.

The State will determine financial assistance on a case-by-case basis up to a maximum of 50% of the total proposal cost or a maximum State contribution amount of $5 million AUD, whichever is lower. The State reserves the right to consider proposals requesting financial assistance greater than $5 million AUD and/or greater than 50% of the total proposal cost.
